Are you lefty or righty?

I myself am a lefty, and would find it fascinating to conduct a servey on how many aspies are righties v. lefties...I used to be ambidextrous...then I began to favour my left.

go ahead and post!

I write, eat..(inc..use chopsticks) with my left hand..but for lots of stuff i am cross-dominant.
I can bat or throw darts with either hand...ummm..often I end up hand-sewing with my right hand...but I also use my left hand for the same thing. I can use both kinds of scissors...
I am predominantly left-handed, but very ambidetxtrious.
My (very Aspie seeming )mom is the same way.

oh yeah..and I play stringed instruments right-handed..but to me playing that way is left-friendly anyway since I am using my "thinking" hand (left) for fretting chords and whatnot.

I have only known a small handfull of lefties who actually played left handed guitar.

That doesn't sound like handedness.

I guess I'm right. But I'm not sure that I'm supposed to be.
I can train either (for example in darts - I love to play against
myself). I used to swing a bat left-handed better, though my
sight was worse on that side.

Cross-Domiance means one hand is prefered for one set of actions and the other hand is prefered for others.

:D The same, but I write with my left, so I consider myself a lefty.

I used to use both for writing, but my right hand was markedly worse (basically unreadable) so I was encouraged to write with my left. I still use my right hand for a lot of stuff, but the left hand is by far the more dominant hand.
